It's kind of a weird morning.
It's weird because the wind is blowing in a random and weird way.
It's weird because it's June, and I slept in a sweatshirt and thick socks last night.
It's weird because it's a Monday and my daycare babies aren't here.
It's weird because I'm about to tell you something that I haven't talked about here on my blog before. Truth be told, I haven't talked about it to many people either. Why? Because it's kind of... Weird.
I've been having some weird health things going on. (Even my doctor used the word weird.) In a nutshell, some mild numbness in my hands and feet, and mild dizziness. It's all very mild, but it's enough to make me think that something is out of whack. And last Friday, I felt like my face even was a little bit numb, so despite feeling fine otherwise, I thought I had better go into the doctor.
Facial numbness is generally frowned upon.
(I think I may have just unwittingly made a bad joke. Please excuse.)
I called the clinic to make an appointment, and when we got to the part about the facial numbness, the lady immediately transferred me to a nurse, to make sure I wasn't having a stroke. This in turn made me feel all weak and rubbery all over, and like I wanted to pass out and throw up all at the same time, while the thought kept running through my head, "Could I be having a stroke? Maybe I am having a stroke. I don't feel like I'm having a stroke. But maybe I am having a stroke."
I wasn't having a stroke.
But my doctor did run some blood tests (all came back normal thus far... still waiting on a couple) and on Wednesday I am going to have an MRI.
I know. It's a little scary. But truth be told, in this moment, the Lord is giving me peace about it. I really just want to get to the bottom of what's going on, and move forward. In the meantime, I'm taking some days off from doing daycare, and simply trying to replenish myself. We had a wonderful weekend together, went to church, did a little of this and a little of that, and took it easy.
As the title of this post says... Eat. Pray. Love. Rest.
I believe in the power of prayer, and if you do too, please include me in yours. :)
